This unique guide comes from Roni Wing Lambrecht, a mom who began journaling to her only child, Dalton, before he was born. Sadly, Dalton passed away prior to having the opportunity to read all the wonderful words his mom had written to him.Roni and, her husband, John, believe Dalton’s Journal has been immensely helpful in their grieving process and they often credit the journal with saving their marriage as they travel through the grieving process. They want to be sure every parent/guardian has the opportunity to put their love for their children into words, even when parents assume they don’t know how to write.
The prompts within this guide embrace numerous topics Roni had written about in the journal to her son, and even more topics she had never thought of until he was gone. The journal you write can be thought of as a gift to your child, with the intention they’ll someday read and share it with their own children. It’s also a beautiful gift when life’s circumstances have been altered, and either the parent or the child are no longer around to speak of the memories contained within the journal.
